Just curious - my husband typically has a 2 to 3 hour wait before chemo starts. So a 2 1/2 hr treatment can easily last 6 hrs. Is that typical? It's a bit frustrating. He gets early morning appts - usually 9 or 9:15. And then he sits there until almost lunch time some days. He is doing folfox plus 30 mins of avastin. He was doing 1/2 hr before and after of the calcium/magnesium for neuropathy but said he doesn't know if it's doing anything and worth the extra hour in an already long day.
